Medium garnet red with bricking on the edges. Very stinky and savory on the nose with a little bit of a dry rub, mint, herbal and stony. Medium tannins (5.5/10) and solid acidity. Nice mouthfeel on the palate on the back end. Earthy characteristics, savory and red cherries. Needs a bit of time to beef up and open up. Medium bodied and medium plus finish. Drink till 2024.

2007 Thelema "The Mint" Cabernet. Yep mint along with green pepper. An excellent wine but the last in my cellar.

Like Martha's Vineyard, subtle notes of mint and chocolate.

Exceptionally fruity on both the nose and palate. Has aged very nicely. Could do with a few more years in the bottle...but why wait when it is so good? 😀

Wow just wow. Perfectly balanced with a menthol finish - but in a good way

A hint of mint with silky smooth tannins. Paired perfectly with lamb shanks.

Not impressive, not layered or complex. Nice fruit smell little tannins but nothing left after it goes down
